  • Description

    Description

    Our orchard is suffering from a drought situation so no canning going on. We are starting over. If you have horticulture/ permaculture experience, please share your knowledge. Want to make everything age friendly.

    I consider myself one of the 4G' 's ( golden girls gone green) which means I am a grandmother still going strong.

    island imports everything which makes items in stores expensive. we also conserve water here. Orchard is across the street from several restaurants and bars with internet access . Some providers have no cell phone coverage on the land. You should travel with funds for island activities.
